Thank all of you for your prayers and words of kindness about my brother which I wrote in my last blog "Desperate prayer request".
My brother called last night. He had to go to the hospital again and have 2 more quarts of liquid drained off of him. They gave him his report of his MRI and he found out he has stage 4 cancer. Very sad. He said he can't take care of his wife and he is going to try to get her in an assisted living. I hope she doesn't get kicked out as she did in the nursing home. They kept her less than one day as she was trying to get out and was hurting them and herself. It is so sad. He did pray with me though for salvation. He was the last one to receive the Lord of my family.
Also I have been MIA as my computer was not working. My friend came today and was able to hook my monitor and my wireless keyboard to my laptop as I don't like the laptop. Neither of them had been working right for several days.
I missed out on a lot of points but that is the least of my concerns right now.
I may have to buy a new PC or stay with two computers hooked up as without the laptop the PC won't work.
God bless all of you who prayed and have been so kind.
I have two brothers left. We were 7 siblings and all the youngest are gone, the three oldest remain of which I am the oldest.
Some time ago the doctor found a mass on my brother's pancreas but his wife has alzheimers and he took care of her instead of himself. He tried to put her in a nursing home but they had no lock up for the Alzheimer's patients so she fought them to get out and hurt them and herself also. They kept her less than a day. In the town they live in they do not have a nursing home with an alzheimers unit. They live in California.
He got down to 137 at almost 6 foot tall. One day her caregiver which came in only to take her vitals, etc. noticed he wasn't well and got him to the hospital fast. He was in the hospital 5 days and they did an MRI. They found two tumors on his lungs and he can hardly breathe. He has copd. Now he weighs 118 and said looks like one of the starving people of Africa. When I called last night he said he was better but his wife worse. He said she doesn't realize he could go at any time.
He is 1 1/2 years younger than I.
It is such a desperate situation since he has to care for her and I know how that is. They have no children just as I have no children
Well just a couple of weeks ago I thought I was dying but now, today, God allowed me to celebrate another year of life.
I have been working a lot of the day on replying to the wonderful messages Face book and Spark people. com sent. The first I got was from the pastors in Reynosa that I have helped for years. First she wrote a beautiful thank you to me and signed it "Your children Maria and Martin" If you speak Spanish and want to see their page it is Jesucristo mi Sanador.
Then she put a video on with a beautiful song.
This morning another video with song was there from them with the Christian mananitas. Both beautiful. Even if you don't speak Spanish you would enjoy the music and pictures.
Then they started pouring in on both sites and also on my page.
Today was my keep beautiful day and my beautician would not let me pay. Before I left to go there though a very good friend came by with a bouquet and card. I had already received cards including one from a step son and his wife with a gift inside that more than paid for my lunch.
Then Sandy Rowden and I decided we would celebrate our birthdays together.
Hers was the 7th but she was out of town and they treated us like queens.
It might take me a day or two to catch up but I know you understand.
Thank you to all who read this and who wished me a happy birthday. Guess what they do get better the older you get and I want you to know something.
THEY HAD ALL KIND OF DESSERTS AND I HAD NONE.
I had the most delicious strawberries and other fruit, veggies, seafood, etc. All healthy.
I am too sleepy to jump for joy now but maybe I will do it when I get up.
